Unfinished Portrait

This is a photo of the portrait of Helen in progress. It is near completion but still needs some work. I periodically like to place it in a frame at this stage to get an overall view of the work.

    Hi Russ,
    Enjoyed looking at your blog and your latest paintings. I will forward the link to Dan so he can see the photos of him painting. He is off to Cortona, Italy next fall for his studio art major.
    Looks like you are busy with lots of portraits. Amy
